We spent 3 nights at the Eiger Guesthouse as part of a 3 week vacation. Had I to plan the trip again, we'd spend at least 5 nights there. It was truly the highlight of our trip! Location, location, location! The hotel is right next to the mountain train station (noise was never a problem!) which made coming and going very easy. The view from our balcony was indescribable.....a constantly changing picture of the incredible Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau range. Though we had on and off rain for the first two days of our trip, it didn't stop us from exploring the area. We took the cable car down to Gimmelwald, the train/cable car and second train to Wengen (across the valley) and then on our third (and remarkably clear) day we went up to the Jungfraujoch and later in the day to Schilthorn. The convenient location of the Eiger Guesthouse and the efficiency of the Swiss public transport system made all of these trips easy!
Ema and her staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. We had several long, pleasant conversations and by the time we left I felt like we were leaving friends. The food in the hotel's restaurant was excellent. Though we didn't take the meal plan that included dinner, we did eat there two evenings and enjoyed the quality and variety of food. Our room was comfortable, clean and, as mentioned, provided us with a fantastic mountain view. Just a few hotels were open when we traveled in October and Murren wasn't our first choice of places to stay. How fortunate for us that we did wind up there! It turned out to be the perfect village and the Eiger Guesthouse turned out to be the perfect place to stay. I truly hope we can return!
